We Two Kings
Larry King's over-hyped interview of LeBron James is scheduled to air Friday night, coincidentally, roughly the same time the NBA Championship Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics gets underway. King, a vastly overrated interviewer, asked the Chosen One whether the Cleveland Cavaliers had the edge in re-signing him as a free agent. Quite predictably, James responded affirmatively, noting that the city of Cleveland and its fans had been good to him. But the truth of the matter, as any NBA fan knows, is that a free agent's current team has vastly more money at its disposal than its competitors. However, with James who aspires to be a global icon, it is more than simply being about money.
